Relationships are an important part of any community, and the online community is no different. Quality is better than quantity; and the better the quality the better your grassroots connections will be. Not only do close relationships enjoy what you do, but they are passionate about your goals and are eager to share them with others(who then may also become passionate too, and the cycle goes on!). So, you need to focus not on how many people you are connected with, but how well you are connected with them.
- It is better to start with 50 committed, active rather than 5000 passive people on a mailing list.
- If you don’t have enthusiastic members, it probably means you need to engage more and put more time into forming relationships with your members.
- Once you find your committed members, they can use their own talents to contribute to the group and enhance the community.
“You grow by identifying the most passionate members and engaging with each of them directly so they feel they can make useful contributions to creating something incredible.”
